Above the garage? I think that's a Hip Gable Dormer.

Easy squeezy.

I'm guessing you want it hollowed on the inside.

I could make it using about 6 prims, roof only, you would still have to make the window/wall and trim.

It could be made from a sculpt but it would loose some of the sharpness of the edges.

Send me an IM Inworld, I can send you a few examples that you can edit.

the actual cut outs there are standard sloped, with a triangular fronting piece at half it's height, and the cornes trimmed back from the sides where they extend below it...

rough shape for the sides is

______\     \ \____/

which can be done in a single piece with a cube,twisted (45/45)and path cut (0.375/0.8), with and x dimension roughly 1/3 of the y and the z flattened.... that should get you close enough to play around with the values, and bring you down to 3 prims for that roof segment
